Bioenergies and microalgae


Published on 6 November 2019
​​Research and biotechnological applications in the field of photosynthesis, hydrogen and biodiesel production by photosynthetic micro-organisms (microalgae, cyanobacteria).

The main scientific objectives of the laboratory are to understand the photosynthetic mechanisms of conversion and storage of the light energy by microalgae or cyanobacteria, to identify the limiting steps and to define and validate strategies of optimization in order to propose new ways of production of biofuel (biohydrogene, biodiesel).
